Beat the butter/sunflower margarine and caster sugar together until pale and fluffy. Gradually add the egg - beating it into the mixture until well incorporated.
Sieve the flour and the baking powder together and fold these into the butter, sugar and egg mixture together with the ground almonds. Add the vanilla essence, to the Greek yogurt and gradually fold this into the cake mixture together with the poppy seeds and lemon zest. Finally stir in the blueberries to the cake mixture.
Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases and scatter the crushed hazelnuts around the top of the muffins. Bake the muffins in the oven for between 15 and 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean.
